What makes Children Smile?
Research has revealed it’s still the simple pleasures in life that make our children smile. Pulling silly faces (44%), reading stories (28%) and playing hide and seek (27%) remain the best and simplest ways of putting a smile on a child’s face, said the survey of 1,000 parents and children.
According to Wrigley Extra, children smile up to 400 times a day! Wow, that is a lot – even though that is surprising to hear, when you think about it does seem right. E and J are always smiling and it is the simple things that make them smile the most.
The research commissioned by Wrigley’s Extra®, spoke to children and their parents about what makes them smile to mark the launch of its own storybook, The Lost Smile.
E absolutely loves books. She likes a good bedtime story and also enjoys reading some books herself. So when I was asked if I would like receive a new book, I accepted. The Lost Smile, as part of the new Wrigley’s Extra Smile Back Project. I was particularly keen to know more about the project and to see what the book was all about.
The story is easy to read and E manages to read some of the words herself but she really enjoys the story being read to her before bedtime and it really does make her smile.
